Vocational Education Fund – Educational Aid For Palestinians (EAP)
Vocational Education Fund – EAP aims to provide courses in vocational training for Palestinian youth who were not offered the chance to continue in their academia. We aim to provide them with the required skills and experience to develop in the local market.
As of late, Vocational Training has become an important sector in the Gaza Strip, with the latest World Bank economic report stating that Gaza’s economy and unemployment rate is now the highest in the world. 43% of Gaza’s 2 million residents are currently unemployed, with youth’s unemployment reaching almost 60% as of last year.
This project aims to provide financial assistance and work with accredited educational institutions to promote vocational training. By providing an intensive, one-year training course – particularly for the youth who were not given the chance to pass secondary school, they are being equipped with the essential skills required to survive, and thrive the working environment.
